Why did James Gunn direct ‘Superman: Legacy?’

Taking to Twitter, Gunn offered insight into the thought process into which he decided to direct.

Here’s part of what he said: ·

“It’s been a long road to get to this point. I was offered Superman years ago –– I initially said no because I lacked the way that feels unique and fun and emotional that gives Superman the dignity he deserves. Then less than a year ago I saw a way in, centered in many ways around Superman’s legacy; how both his aristocratic Kryptonian parents and his Kansas farm parents informed who he was and the choices he made. So I chose to end up writing a script. But I was hesitant to direct, despite Peter Safran and the others being constantly pestered to commit (sorry, Peter). Just because I wrote something doesn’t mean I feel it in my bones, visually and emotionally, enough to spend over two years directing it, especially not something this big.
